We're not ones to complain, but the sudden arrival of summer heat might catch some off guard.
Temperatures this week are expected to range close to 30C and feel even hotter once factors such as still air, sunshine and relatively humidity are factored in.
No employer wants to put their valued staff at risk so care is needed when working conditions require employees to perform in hot conditions.
After last year's extreme heat, a number of municipalities are also being proactive this week to protect businesses and residents.
The District of Saanich is offering tips for keeping cool, as well as offering up rec centres as cooling stations.
The District of Oak Bay has issued tips to Beat the Heat, while the City of Langford, the City of Colwood, the Township of Esquimalt and the Town of View Royal have also made public statements showcasing water parks and fountains to help residents stay cool. And if you're downtown, City of Victoria has misting stations that can help keep you and your four-legged friends cool.
